A Mooooving Experience

The next hybrid you read about might not be an energy-efficient car.

It might be a human/animal hybrid embryo, designed for scientific research purposes.

"It does seem a little abhorrent at first analysis," said Newcastle University's Doctor Lyle Armstrong, who helped to create the world's first cloned human embryo in 2005.

"But you have to understand we are using very, very little information from the cow in order to do this reprogramming idea.

"It's not our intention to create any bizarre cow-human hybrid, we want to use those cells to understand how to make human stem cells better."

Okay, first those wacky aliens were stealing our cows. Now those wacky scientists are combining those poor cows with humans. What’s going to happen next?
